009 Re:Cyborg – English Cast Announcement & Pre-order!

_入稿0718_OLThe wait is over, sci-fi anime fans— the new sci-fi action thriller anime 009 Re:Cyborg is now available for preorder— and getting an English dub! Plus, we’re announcing the release specs AND the cast announcement!

 

What’s 009 Re:Cyborg? Well, if you loved the classic cerebral sci-fi action anime like Ghost in the Shell or Akira from “the good old days”— movies that astounded you visually, throttled your adrenaline, but also made you think— 009 Re:Cyborg is definitely an extension of that tradition. The film comes to you with the cutting-edge action-packed production values of legendary studio Production I.G. (Psycho-Pass, Ghost in the Shell: Arise), plus smart, slick direction that could only come from the mind of the director of Ghost in the Shell: SAC and Eden of the East, Kenji Kamiyama.

 

The first-run release of 009 Re:Cyborg is our Limited Edition and comes with an exclusive 44-page Interview and Data booklet, packed to the brim with behind-the-scenes key points about the direction and world of the film, as well as artwork, character profiles, and a very thorough interview with the director. As anime fans, we’ve loved seeing Director Kamiyama’s take on how technology affects human interactions in our modern and increasingly globalized world, themes hugely apparent in his past works, so if you like cool sci-fi that also has meaning, 009 Re:Cyborg is a real showcase of all of that. When we say that this booklet is packed, we mean PACKED— it’s very dense and a great value add to any fans who wants to get a little more out of anime. Look out for previews of the booklet soon!

 

With that all out of the way, here’s your cast!

In the time of the Hundred Years’ War, a young and powerful witch known as Maria leads a reclusive existence.

She assists people of all walks of life with the help of her two familiars: a succubus and an incubus with great powers of seduction. Though she seeks only peace, the archangel Michael despises her use of magic to interfere in human affairs and decrees that should she ever manage to lose her virginity, Maria’s powers will vanish!
